“Piling” up the Problems

“The place where happiness, peace, and fulfillment lies is in the present moment.” – Adapted from FEAR pg. 44, by Thitch Nhat Hanh 
I just got off the phone with one of my sponsees whom I dearly love. He told me about a problem he is having. Then about another. What started as a trickle of concerns, soon became a rushing stream. I call this “Piling”. I asked him to tell me which of these problems must be solved this day and cannot wait even one more day. He paused, then said “None”. Feeling better, he then agreed to give them to God—just for 24 hours—and focus on enjoying this day and all that it offers. Just like him, when I let go of the future and the past, give them both to God and enjoy the present moment, ILML!
